Several from the Champion Hurdle reoppose in Punchestown's equivalent
1 of 1

Both the Gold Cup and Stayers Hurdle have delivered heart-stopping finishes this week and we have not yet had what, according to the betting, is the most open championship race at this year's Punchestown festival.

The Betdaq Punchestown Champion Hurdle features the Champion Hurdle placed horses (My Tent Or Yours and Petit Mouchoir), one who could not do himself justice there (Brain Power), one who maybe should have been there (County Hurdle winner Arctic Fire) and Vroum Vroum Mag, whose air of invincibility has dispersed lately but she remains a ferocious prospect in receipt of weight from the geldings.

The other Grade 1 on the card is the Tattersalls Ireland Champion Novice Hurdle, in which Death Duty goes out to salvage his reputation against the likes of Finian's Oscar.

It is also the final day of the Perth festival, which features the Highlands National and Brian Harding's final ride on Anywaythewindblows in the bumper.

On the Flat, Sandown hosts a high-class card including the Gordon Richards Stakes, Classic Trial and Mile.
